ChanelSpring2012Grazia 540x405 Runway: Chanel Couture Takes Flight Spring 2012

Chanel’s runway show for its couture Spring 2012 show took place today in a simulated plane, complete with a serving cart with drinks, speaking to a theme of blue skies and flying high–hair that is. Clever that Karl! And hmm, who might THAT be sitting front and right, natch, in the major upgrade seat….If you’d like, watch the finale here replete with what sounds like circus music, courtesy of Grazia.

As nail art purists we  definitely endorse a  face to face manicure where you get to chat with the artist and see him/her create the magic. Nonetheless when time is an issue or a fierce nail artist on the other side of town , a press on nail is a great option. Recently discovered on Style Pantry, Wendy from Kawaii Factory makes some fun sets like the  Chanel-inspired art (above) with a more unique feel than the sets you can get at a drugstore. Take a closer look a what’s available here.

Paper mag has hipped us up to a Youtube blog listing its most popular fashion videos in 2011. No. 1 is featured here, “25 Ways To Wear A Scarf  in 4.5 Minutes,” and it’s a good watch, but if you’re thinking all the world viewed Chanel’s amazing Spring 2012 runway show or at least one of many H&M x Versace collabo videos, think again because after the scarf expo it’s a quick downhill plunge with nary a brand, retailer or runway in sight.

On the next page, a collection of clips from Youtube’s most popular videos overall in 2011. It’s hosted by Rebecca Black, which yep, guess which video was No. 1?  To see more lists by category, click here.

Q&A: Leah McSweeney Married To The MOB


We caught up with designer Leah McSweeney recently to find out the latest developments with her Married to the MOB label. A pioneer on the streetwear scene when she started up MOB seven years ago, the label has had it twists and turns, including the recent conclusion of a partnership with an investor and is getting back to its roots, albeit with a second-act heaping does of wisdom. McSweeney = MOB so it’s no surprise that many of the bumps, bruises and joys experienced by the brand over the past few years found a parallel in the young designer’s own life. Compelling, frank, more than slightly intense, not to mention a bit of a lightening rod, this is one female whose next moves we will always look out for and cheer.

HS: A lot has happened in the past year. Can you catch everyone up on Married to the Mob and what happened to your brand? You had investors and now you are no longer partnered with them.

Leah: Legally I can’t get into details. In the long run, the only thing that matters is I got my company back. I have nothing but gratitude toward my ex-partners, they believed in me but we’re two different animals. They’re amazing at what they do with men’s brands and I will say the three years I had funding, it was the best education on the business. I worked side by side with super smart, successful people, but more importantly I learned how to make a garment, and I learned about fabric, production and design. I started out making tee shirts and I didn’t have any experience. When I went into the partnership I was 25 and on top of the world, thinking, this is the easiest thing getting this brand to blow up. I thought it was the be all end all and it was just the beginning.

In the Q&A continued on the next page, find out aobut MOB’s second act, McSweeney’s road to sobriety, favorite collabos, what she has to say about streetwear, the future of “bitch” in MOB designs, and the start of a new label.
